Please note:  I operate by appointment only.  I am not a "retail" location with inventory to browse.  Anything I have locally will be posted in the In Store Inventory page as well as posted on several local firearms sites, anything else available on the website is ordered from a distributor, then shipped for pick up.  I am on file with most "major" firearms vendors online.  If I am not on file with a place you would like to order from, please send me an email with the contact information for that vendor and I will gladly send our license to them. 

*Firearm FFL Transfer Services*

Handgun, Rifle, Shotgun, Lower receiver, pistol frame:

- Incoming Transfer - $25 (Please contact us first before having an inbound transfer sent to confirm availability)

- Outgoing Transfer - $25 + actual shipping costs

- Private Party Sale Transfer - $25

* Additional firearms on the SAME transfer are $5/ea.  This only applies if you order multiple firearms from the SAME seller/website that arrive in the SAME shipment OR to additional orders that arrive within 48 hours of the first.

For example, if you purchase multiple firearms from multiple sources and they arrive across multiple dates and shipments, those will count as individual transfers.

** 2 or more handguns on one transfer will incur an additional fee of $5.  Purchases of more than 2 handguns within a 5 business day period requires extra paperwork to be filed with the ATF and local CLEO.  This applies even if you hold a valid concealed carry permit.

*** In the event of a failed background check/denial, the transfer fee still applies.  It is the responsibility of the customer to contact the seller and make arrangements for a refund.  DC Arms will NOT ship any firearm back to the original seller without the transfer fee being paid and a prepaid label to return the firearm.  In the event a prepaid label is not issued by the seller, actual shipping charges will be added to the transfer fee.  If you do not contact the original seller to make arrangments to return the firearm due to UBC denial within the seller's return window, the firearm will become property of DC Arms LLC.

*** Any firearms left over 30-days without a prior storage arrangement will be considered abandoned and it becomes the legal property of DC Arms LLC.  Unless prior arrangments are made, incoming transfer firearms will start incurring a storage fee of $5 per day AFTER 5 days of not being picked up.  Once the storage fee's total the cost of the firearm, the customer will have the option to pay the entire storage fee if they then decide to pick up the firearm.  Again, this only applies WITHOUT any prior coordination/arrangement if you cannot pick up the firearm in a timely manner.
